I have trouble taking mineral supplementation because metals often interfere with medication absorption. I know the body can store reserves of minerals. I read somewhere it’s possible to do this prior to an event like a marathon, with the theory being similar to carb loading (not sure if it’s true). Would it be possible to dose with supplemental potassium, magnesium, and calcium once every other day to once per week?
If so, what would be appropriate doses? Is there a risk of overdose and toxicity? Is mineral supplementation liver stressful?
Also, I am the type of person which requires electrolyte supplementation even with a complete diet.
